Interior wall covering

I have a 2004 Southwind 37C and had an issue with a wall. The damaged wall is just behind the living room slide and had a leakage problem. I need to know how Fleetwood fastened the wall paneling to the wall frame (or whatever they fastened it to). The paneling is bulging in a narrow area. I think I can get similar paneling but the shipping is outrageous. I realize the paneling is very thin and covered with a paper material.

Often the walls are made in a unit, outside, internal frame, insulation, and inside skin. It's probably glued to either the framing or the insulation.

I have a new HR and just dropped it of at the dealer this morning to get a wall panel replaced under warranty. Its on an outside wall in the 1/2 bath. My dealer ordered the replacement panels from the factory and really didn't think it was much of an issue to replace but didn't indicate how it would be done.
I would think some type of glue might be used.

Here is what a 98 looks like behind the paneling. The thin board was glued to the foam. I went to HD and bought a sheet of Tempered Hardboard and glued that to the foam. I'm going to paint that whole wall once it's all back together.
